HEY SKIP! Can't believe a year has gone by since we lost you to this "dimension". Can you believe that they"ve sent people to outer space. William Shatner got to go too. I'm sure that you know all of this from where you are now! How many times we talked about this kind of stuff when we were kids. Doesn't seem that long ago!!!
Hey, what happened to that "visit"? Katie got to see you! Stop by sometime and say "hi". You"re probably to busy catching up on all the family gossip with everyone. Probably going on motorcycle rides with Bob too!
We miss you and Love you.
Donna and Mike
Happy Birthday Skip!
We know that you're enjoying KFC & all the cake, ice cream & whipped cream that you love!
Have you met Elvis yet? Maybe he even sang Happy Birthday to you along with the rest of our family & friends!
Can you believe that they're talking about going to Mars now. I can just hear the conversations that you & Mr. Neff are having about this!!!
There's a new movie coming out. "Godzilla vs Kong".Bet you & Fr. Tesek and Fr. Rob would love to see that one.
We love and miss you bunches! It's not the same without you here!
Come visit! Later Gator

Okay, so many night on top of that chicken coop searching the skies, and then you never took me up on that first date?
Decent, honest caring, humble....and oh, the jokes!!!!!!!!
Skip, you left us with great memories. You will be missed.
My favorite movie made by Skip will always be "Star Bores" starring our cylinder vacuum cleaner as R2D2! I can't remember the name of the movie about flying saucers, but I remember throwing a hubcap up in the air so that he could film it to represent an alien invasion. What an imagination...
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
In memory of John "Skip" Hudak, Nancy Gobble lit a candle
As a friend of Larry Penosa and Chris and Carl Krysiak, we had the pleasure of meeting John at a couple picnics at the Krysiak’s. He was good joke teller and fascinating person talk to. God bless you John for all the laughter and love you gave.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Skip was a true treasure, and I feel blessed to have known him the way I did.
I remember Skip being stuck with the chore of "babysitting" both my brother and I many times as our families visited over the holidays. I am proud to know how profoundly (and sarcastically) he shaped the man I am today! For example, there is the story of the unpublished comic stories he wrote, drew, and collected, to read over and over again to Greg and I. These have been seen by few, and I count myself among the extremely lucky to have held them in my hands as a young boy! Based on your 1950s sci-fi and twilight zone type material, he was a master at story-telling, and excelled enough to really inspire me to draw at an early age! I've become aware that not many have seen this blue 3-ring binder filled with these comic pages. This is a hidden treasure, possibly placed secretly by him, for someone to find some day... as he laughs while you all look for it!! Now, that's a memory for me...
John: “I’m dying.”
Marty: You are? So am I.
John: “I’m going to live to be 107 years old; live a long, healthy life (mantra continues)……”
Marty: “You want to live to 107? That’s an awful long time. Are you sure?”
John: “Well, I think I do.”
“It’s not that I’m afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
Marty: “So you don’t care about dying?”
John: “Well, you know what the atheist said to God upon meeting Him after the atheist died…’Well I’ll be damned.’”
And so it went. John loved talking about God, UFOs, science, flying or whatever came up. He was interesting, good-nature d, insightful, witty and a good friend. I will miss him terribly.
I can just hear him saying, “Why do shoemakers go to heaven? Because they have good soles!”
Does anyone else remember the infamous rock movie Skip made? It had a tinfoil blob at first which he edited out! Then all it was was a bunch of rocks on a card table, and he moved the camera back and forth for 15 minutes! It was one of the most hysterical things I've ever seen in my life. Katie
The posted picture really captures his "Happy Go Lucky" spirit.
We are so sad to hear of John's passing.
We will truly miss him and his genuine friendship ♥
Good Buddies for many years.
I will really miss you John.
Love you buddy
Wishing you peace Skippy as you continue your journey to reconnect with loved ones.
I am so sorry to learn of Skip's passing. He will be missed. He had a mischief smile, he was quick with the jokes and loved vanilla and whipped cream. Most people enjoy pie with whipped cream, Skip would have mounds of whipped cream with a small slice of pie. He brought out the best in humanity, he had a smile for everyone and everyone greeted him. He will be missed.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
